Sony Xperia C Review: Cash And Carry: Synthetic Benchmarks And Performance

By 04:57 Sat, 14 Aug 2021 Comments


Synthetic benchmarks and performance

The Xperia C is Sony's first device we meet running on the MediaTek's best quad-core chispet. It is powered by a quad-core 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) Cortex-A7 low-powered processor, with PowerVR SGX544 graphics and 1GB of RAM.

The Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) delivers a decent mid-range performance very close to the Cortex-A9 chips, with the added benefit of lower power consumption.

Our first test is all about single-core performance, where the Xperia C scored similar results to most of the Cortex-A9-powered competitors.

Next up, we put all four cores to the test in the multi-core version of the Linpack benchmark. The Sony Xperia C either had some problems with the test or it is just that bad. Anyway its score is almost identical to the quad-core LG Optimus 4X HD.

We also run the GeekBench 3 Central Processing Units (CPU) benchmark. The Xperia C matched the score of the Oppo R819, which is powered by the same MT6589 chipset, both occupying bottom spots in our chart.

AnTuTu 4 gauges the overall device performance instead of just the Central Processing Units (CPU) and the Sony Xperia C managed to output half the scores of the top Snapdragon 800 chips. The Quadrant test does the same as AnTuTu, but the Xperia C fell in the bottom of our chart there among the quad-core Crotex-A9 droids.

It's time to test the PowerVR SGX544 graphic processing unit. We ran both GLBenchimprint tests in off-classy screen mode, testing raw GPU power. The Xperia C fell at the bottom of our charts, which means the PowerVR SGX544 GPU is the weaker among all 2013 chipsets.

We also ran Epic Citadel benchimprint on the Ultra High Quality setting. Here the Xperia C showed even though its GPU may be struggling to handle 1080p screens, the PowerVR SGX544 graphic chip offers nicely playable framerates on the qHD resolution display. And a strong case can be made that this is what actually counts.

Finally, the Sony Xperia C placed near the bottom of the chart in the Vellamo browser benchmark, but its score is actually quite close to those in front.

The Sony Xperia C might not be the benchimprint beast geeks would dream about, but it's not underpowered by any means. The MT6589 is powerful enough to provide fast, fluid and lag-free performance on the qHD resolution of Xperia C and will handle well every app and game out there. And in this price range, this is more than enough.
